Update on Germany intention to restrict BPA in articles and mixtures in concentrations above 0.02%
Substance: 4,4'-isopropylidenediphenol Bisphenol A
Details on the scope of restriction: Restricting the use as an additive and the content in articles (0.02% by weight). B) Restricting content of residues (unreacted monomer) in articles – also for imported goods (0.02% by weight). C) Restricting the use of mixtures with content of 0.02% by weight for industrial and professional uses where strictly controlled conditions cannot be assured, e.g. in non-automated processes and for consumer uses. D) Introducing release rates for BPA from articles (products and subassemblies) during service life (weathering, leaching due to cleaning action) preventing release into the environment and/or (direct) migration to organisms.
